Accepting email secondary domain

I have an SBS 2008 server which was configured to accept email from a second domain. For the past year only two of the users were using this secondary domain and there have been no problems. Yesterday I tried to add secondary email addresses for several other users. All email sent to the newly created secondary addresses is being bounced. Email to the original 2 users' secondary addresses is still being delivered.

To add the additional email address I simply added a second SMTP entry to each user's email profile using the Exchange Console.

 Any ideas what the problem might be?

as long as you have domain2.com configured as an accepted domain any recipient should be capable of receiving with that smtp address

attempt to send a message from outside and post the ndr

hi

  1. as aboveNDR will reveal the cause of the bounce.
  2. Have you restarted server or AD services or excahnge services ? they might have not propagated.

There is 3rd party journaling setup for this secondary domain. I don't remember how it was configured and I am wondering if that could be causing the problem. I didn't see anything obvious in the journaling config but I don't recall exactly how it was originally setup. I am looking for the relevant docs now.

yes, the third party is most likely performing recipient filtering and does not know of the new addresses

Turns out this was a DNS issue. It seems that the MX record points to a 3rd party mail server. Emails to 2 of the users are then forwarded to our server and delivered. The 3rd party email server doesn't know anything about any other users and so the messages are bounced.

Now all I have to do is try and figure how to get access to these DNS records. No one seems to know anything about the account and I am having trouble contacting the registrar..........
